“Positions” by Ivana Müller (2013)

In Positions Ivana Müller deals with the concept of “economy” and it’s different versions:
economy of movement, economy of identity, economy of emotion, economy of theatre; using assets that define our social identity, our civil status, our class position and our life style as currency.
A “capital” that is there in the beginning of the show, a “potential”, or “destiny” that each of the
performers has gets exchanged, traded, bargained, fructified and capitalized on through an obscure practice that resembles a “black-market”. What in the beginning looks almost like a children’s game develops into an imaginative and emotional journey based on the idea of “exchange” that offers a complex reflection on the idea and place of value and the representation of the same.
